            Hi VaporMohawk, Thank you for posting this hand for review and I have asked one of the Hand Analysers to take a look at it for you. He will do this within the next 24 hours and once it's been analysed I will advise on the next step. Cheers! flophitter umbup:

              Hi VaporMohawk! With JJ (or any other hand I'm going to raise with), I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 2 limpers, I will raise to 50. I want to keep all of my bets and raises standard, as this helps to conceal the strength of my hand. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent... something that I need to avoid. I then get a shove and a 2 calls of it. Here is where I need a read on the opps. If the opps are extremely tight, then I need to muck my JJ. If the opps are extremely loose, then I will re-shove to try and isolate the initial player that shoved. I don't want to call for two reasons. First, calling this is well over 1/3 of my chips, which means that I'm pot-committed and cannot fold. Secondly, I need to make the opp pay to see a card that beats me. If they have an overcard, I want them to pay the extra few chips before they see that they hit the flop. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                    Hi VaporMohawk, I'm glad you find the hand analysis helpful. I wanted to award you with your first bonus, however I don't see your Poker Basic pass in our system here. It might be a glitch but I suggest you take the quiz again and then hopefully I'll see your pass from this end. If you encounter any issues please let me know. flophitter umbup:

                          Hi VaporMohawk, Well it shows ok now, so guess it was a delay in the admin system - sorry about that. So good news... Brilliant! You've done all 3 tasks and you'll get your first bonus in the next 24 hours, good job! Step Two Use your first buy-in to only play the 1/2 cent real money FULL RING tables on PokerStars. Do not play any other type of game other than this. Post one hand that you had difficulty with here in this thread using the hand replayer and we will analyze it for you. Please watch the following video and answer the question below. List 3 reasons why a player may want to make a big bet? Then study the Cash Game course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this. So you have 3 things to do to earn your next bonus. 1) Play the 1/2 cent Real Money tables and post an interesting hand here in the Forum using the Hand Replayer. 2) Watch the Bet Sizing video and answer the question below it. 3) Study and pass the Cash Game quiz. Let us know as soon as you have all 3 tasks complete and we will award you with your next buy-in. Best of Luck! flophitter umbup:

                            2- To bluff of decent hands

                            3- To gain value for my big hands
